This is a clarification of Cyb's Salt Tek[1], designed for people with minimal knowledge of chemistry. I've revamped this tek because I feel that proper safety precautions are not advised in any others. This tek is designed to be safe, not the most effective, and for small amounts of Mimosa Hostilis. If you wish to extract large quantities, or to risk your life for some extra N,N-DMT, find another tek. This tek has an efficiency of 4%. You will extract 1g of N,N-DMT from 50g of Mimosa Hostilis. 50g of Mimosa Hostilis should cost you in the realm of $10-$20.

I am expecting some criticism about excessive safety precautions. I would remind you that Naphtha is simply a cocktail of undocumented organic compounds, many of which you do not want to be inhaling. Like other corrosive acids and alkalis, drops of sodium hydroxide solutions can decompose proteins and lipids in skin, eyes or other living tissues via amide hydrolysis and ester hydrolysis, which consequently causes chemical burns and may induce permanent blindness if it contacts your eyes.[2][3]

Supplies & Equipment

All links are to Amazon. Scale proportions linearly with increased/decreased Mimosa Hostilis supply. The total cost of supplies will be in the area of $100-200, including chemicals. Further extractions can be done as-needed with a cost of about $15 per extraction. The required protective gear may seem intimidating, but if you follow this tek to the letter, you will have no problems. The cost may seem intimidating, but it's for your safety, and will allow you to extract DMT and other substances without worrying about exposure to dangerous chemicals.


You are risking your own safety by excluding or substituting any of these.

Precautions & Information

Personnel: I do not recommend performing the extraction alone.

Sodium Hydroxide

Eyes: . Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention immediately. Finish by rinsing thoroughly with running water to avoid a possible infection.

Skin: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Cold water may be used. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.

Mouth: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention immediately.


Eyes: High vapor concentration or contact may cause irritation and discomfort.

Skin: Brief contact may cause slight irritation. Skin irritation leading to dermatitis may occur upon prolonged or repeated contact. Can be absorbed through skin. Promptly wash the contaminated skin with soap and water. If this chemical penetrates the clothing, promptly remove the clothing. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Mouth: Aspiration hazard if liquid is inhaled into lungs, particularly from vomiting after ingestion. Aspiration may result in chemical pneumonia, severe lung damage, respiratory failure and even death. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Seek medical attention immediately.

Inhalation without respirator: Vapors or mists from Naphtha can irritate the nose, throat, and lungs, and can cause signs and symptoms of central nervous system depression, depending on the concentration and duration of exposure. If a person breathes vaporous Naphtha, move the exposed person (or yourself) to fresh air at once. If breathing has stopped, perform artificial respiration. Keep the affected person warm and at rest. Get medical attention immediately.

Most organic compounds present in Naphtha depress the functioning of the nervous system. However, the effects of each inhalant are difficult to determine because Naphtha is made up of many different chemicals and each person may breathe in different amounts of each chemical. Nevertheless, these chemicals do have significant effects on the nervous system, skin, liver, kidneys, and blood.

Some of the effects of exposure are similar to those of alcohol. The immediate effects vary depending on concentration and length of exposure. They include:

  • Relaxation
  • Slurred speech
  • Euphoria
  • Hallucinations
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • DEATH: Respiratory failure, heart failure

Long term inhalation of Naphtha can cause:

  • Memory loss
  • Concentration problems
  • Visual disturbances; blindness
  • Motor problems
  • Peripheral nerve damage
